No. 23 Iowa St beats Oklahoma St 92-83 in Big 12 tourney


March 9th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Monte Morris was an assist shy of the second triple-double in Big 12 Tournament history, leading No. 23 Iowa State to a 92-83 victory over Oklahoma State in the quarterfinals Thursday. Morris finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for the fourth-seeded Cyclones (21-10), who will carry their late-season season momentum into a semifinal matchup with either No. 1 Kansas or TCU.

Deonte Burton added 17 points and 10 rebounds, Naz Mitrou-Long had 14 points and Darrell Bowie had 13 for Iowa State, which has won seven of its last eight. The only defeat was to No. 11 West Virginia. Juwan Evans poured in 29 points for the Cowboys (21-11). But except for his backcourt mate Jeffrey Carroll, who had 21 points, the sophomore guard didn’t get much help.

The Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund has donated $600 to the weight room at the Atlantic High School. Trevor’s mom and Fund Spokesperson Melanie Petty said Ryan Henderson, AHS teacher/coach has implemented an amazing online program called teambuildr. It allows 500 athletes and students to track their weights training both in class and in their athletics if they are participating in any.

Six magnetic cases were purchased that attach to the weight benches for PE students and athletes. The donation of $600 will be used to purchase the devices to go in the magnetic cases. After speaking with both Ryan Henderson and Amber Moore, Petty said they found that the device and program will be able to keep track of the students 4 years of progress at AHS.

Melanie said also, that they “Are excited to help out with this project and hope all the students will take advantage of this new technology.”

Hawkeyes enter B1G Tournament on the bubble


March 9th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Hawkeyes will try to play their way into the NCAA field when they open the Big Ten Tournament this (Thursday) evening, against Indiana. The Hawkeyes put themselves into the conversation on the strength of a three game winning streak that saw them finish league play with a record of 10-8.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery likes the depth on his team but says it is not as big of an advantage in a tournament setting as some believe. The teams met once during the regular season with the Hawkeyes claiming a nail biter in Iowa City.
